Golisodor is the name of the deck used by Naoto Suzuki, the runner-up in the Masters Division of the 2017 World Championships. It is one of the 2017 World Championships Decks, released November 17, 2017. Each deck comes with a Worlds 2017 deckbox, a booklet about the championships, a Worlds 2017 pin, and a code card for the TCGO. The cards included in the deck aren't the prints actually used in the decks, but are the most recent printing of the lowest rarity of the cards.



Naoto Suzuki combined the new Golisopod-GX with the already popular Garbodor (both the Trashalanche and Garbotoxin versions) to reach the Masters Division finals! With the help of Float Stones and new Supporter cards Guzma and Acerola, this deck can keep switching Golisopod-GX into the Active spot—and unleash 120 damage for a single Grass Energy with its First Impression attack. Later in the game, after the opponent has played enough Item cards, Garbodor can finish things off with a massive Trashalanche!


Naoto hasn't been playing the Pokémon TCG for very long, but thanks to some expert assistance from his teammates—including last year's World Champion, Shintaro Ito—he crafted the Golisopod/Garbodor deck that brough him to the finals of his very first World Championships. "I used decks my friends were using as reference," he says. "I practiced with my friends every day and made adjustments." Naoto says his most memorable match was "when I battled a Japanese player in the seminfinals. He's a top-class player in Japan, so I was excited to play against him but also nervous."
